And Wilma Said "Let There Be Dark..."

Thirteen days after Hurricane Wilma, and Florida Power and Light happily reports on its website that they have restored power to 92 percent of the 3.2 million customers originally affected.

So how unlucky do I (and most of my neighborhood in North Miami Beach) have to be to bottom-feed here in these last 8 percent of unfortunates?

13 days in the dark and counting....

Jay, did your district vote the right way in 2000 and 2004? If not, it may be dark for a loooooong time.

As Instapundit likes to say, "heh."

My sympathies. Several years ago we had a big flood and were mandatorily evacuated. I can say that we were literally the last family allowed to return to our home. It was, however well over a week before we could get our basement pumped, our furnace completely cleaned and heat into to house since it was the middle of January.

I have this inescapable visual running in my head of Jay dressed as Fred Flintstone, being chased around the kitchen by a skillet-wielding Wilma, threatening to put his lights out.

Fred Flintstone was drawn to look like Ralph Kramden (ne Gleason) and Wilma like Alice. Now if you wanted to compare me to Cary Grant or Clark Gable, I'm willing to listen...

well look at it this way you are one of 256,000 without power. 8% may not sound like a lot but it's not just you that got shafted at least.
